Paper: VMware vCloud Director Security Hardening Guide

At the beginning of the month VMware finally released its long awaited cloud management solution called vCloud Director (formerly Project Redwood).

The company now published the product’s hardening guide: a 37-pages document covers vCloud Director architecture and security features, the infrastructure hardening, the certificates configuration and management, the security at network level and the resources isolation, as well as the auding/logging and the user and identities management.


While a good start, it surprisingly lacks of a consistent section about the integration with the new vShield Edge product, that VMware created exactly to protect the tenants in the vCloud environment. Hopefully VMware will release another paper specific about the two products together.
